The Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 SUV is a truly majestic vehicle on wheels, a mobile fortress of luxury and performance that amazes even the critics. Its size and opulent equipment make it a top-of-the-range electric vehicle on the market, but it also leaves an ambivalent feeling. On the one hand, there is admiration for the technical refinements, such as all-wheel steering, which makes the car feel like it is turning on the spot, or the futuristic hyperscreen cockpit. On the other hand, the reality of everyday urban life quickly raises doubts as to whether the huge electric SUV is really the right choice for narrow roads or the critical eyes of the city.
There is no doubt that the EQS SUV is a masterpiece of comfort and technology that you can feel as soon as you get in. The materials feel classy, the infotainment is state-of-the-art and the seats are so comfortable that every journey is likely to last longer. The performance is also impressive, no question about it. The SUV accelerates so quickly that you would think it was being pulled by a powerful magnet. And the driving itself is more like floating on a wave of silence and elegance. However, the power of this performance does not always correspond to the range and charging stops are unavoidable, but fortunately they are quick. The weight of the giant in combination with its monster battery alone raises questions about environmental compatibility and sustainability.
Nevertheless, the luxury electric car is clearly conquering the streets and hearts of well-heeled people. Mercedes-Benz' exclusive strategy seems to be paying off in view of the latest quarterly figures. At a time when luxury, performance and charging speed are in demand, the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV seems to be the right answer for some. (cen/fw)
